An impressive Eton team, with all the players registering a 0 handicap, defeated their old adversaries Harrow (rec 2.5 goals on handicap) 7-2.5 at Guards Polo Club on Jack Wills Varsity Polo Day. The Eton team's match experience shone through and they played beautiful, four-man polo throughout the game.
Eton's success was despite the best efforts of Harrow's Kigen Moi, who was named he Most Valuable Player. He battled hard in defence, never giving up throughout the four chukkas, but could not contain the teamwork and talent of the Eton boys. George Pearson who made his debut for the Eton team last year, was delighted to receive the Jack Wills Best Playing Pony Award for Moley.
Without doubt some of the boys playing for Eton on Jack Wills Day 2012 will, soon be sporting an England shirt in that other great fixture at Guards Polo Club - the Audi International Polo.
